Well once again it seems the will of a few rich people dicate the lives of many. I remember as a boy and a teenager parking my car and walking down to the point to stay overnight fishing. Now even that is against the law. What ever happened to simple common couresty or caring? Now days it seems to be all about me. If I was able, I would buy the land, take me materials to it and build an old eyesore on the land and then say sorry...not part of your HOA. I think the state really needs to take control of these HOAs as they seem to become nothing more then a tool for a few to hurt many.

I think PRT needs to sale the land to CCU or USC for research and to keep that area public. I have been to the point many times over the past 20 years and I love just walking around enjoying the natural beauty. I even got in trouble one from my dad about 20 years ago (I was 11)when I went out for the day and didn't tell him and he had to talk the security guard at Inlet Harbor to letting him drive out to get me and my friends. Fun times....

You know that the residents of Inlet Harbour walk over and use that property, they just want to be greedy and try to keep more beachfront land for their rich selfish selves. If the POA is so against it being delveloped they should buy it for appraised value and turn it into a neighborhood park. Inlet Harbour residents are some of the most stuck up people on the Grandstrand, and this keeps proving its true. Another sad thing is that the resident, most of them only use these houses as vacation houses, they are not there most of the time. I mean how greedy can you be, sounds like they are probably all yankees!

The land serves its purpose. The point is used by thousands of persons as a beach and nature outing. I am sure that the inland persons commen ting live near gated communities also. They need to worry about there communities.

I can see the gated dwellers position on not allowing any access through there community, but how can you sell a piece of property with no utility or emergency access.
They wanted to sell the land for the money, but they don't want anyone using what they bought.
The property should be posted, and the very first gated dweller that strolls out there should be arrested for trespassing!!!

I have mixed feelings about this. The picture attached to the article made me sad. When we lived in the Inlet back in the 60's and 70's there was nothing out there and we beached our sailboat on every piece of land in sight. Now it's been overdeveloped and is an eyesore, in my opinion...I hate seeing it.

But at the same time, I'm glad that the HOA won this battle...at least there's some remnant of what the Inlet used to be and can still be enjoyed by boaters if nothing else.

Put a fence up. That'll keep people away. Or at least make it a pain to access. A hideous fence, maybe a foot within the property for safety.

i am glad that they can not build there. That is the problem around here now, there is way to much building going on. This is not a family area anymore, it is an area of who can make the most money. If you want to live like New York or CA then move there.

This is becoming so popular...I will decide what you can and can not do with your property because it's my right because I live next door. What ever happened to the law that no land can be landlocked if access was in existance previous to the development of ... Inlet Harbour. I agree with the comment concerning the fact that the HOA should buy the property at market value and then they can do with it as they wish but it is not theirs and they should not be able to stop the development of the owner if it is zoning compliance. Makes you wonder who paid who.

What a beautiful piece of property.

Why not grant an easement for access and put the property into a trust for ALL to enjoy?

We have plenty of exclusive developments. Can we ever have too much public land?

First, for those of you so disenchanted with the court's decision, perhaps you should pick up some recent case law and read it. The law absolutely says they have no right to use the road to access their property and if they had been prudent enough to realize that before they bought the land, this would not have been a problem. If you have a problem with the law, become a lawyer or take it up with your legislators.
Second, in response to Gated Residents R Greedy's comment, you clearly don't know a thing about the people who live in Inlet Harbour. Most of Inlet Harbour's residents are locals who have owned property there for many years. And they happen to be very upstanding citizens. In fact, I would imagine that Yankees are very scarce in Inlet Harbour. I would suggest you do your research before you make ignorant and blatantly bitter comments in the future.
